    The Official Truck of Bass Pro Shops

    Bass Pro... The official truck is a toyota tundra... I ask myself how many toyota employees shop there? Why would they not have an American truck like a chevy for a ford?? I guess my question is, do you even shop there? And if you do shop there, do you drive an American car?

    Just some food for thought....

    Let's see, before I vote, let me point out one thing.

    Toyota Factory Tour in Georgetown, KY (Foreign made where???) LOL.

    Let me point out another myth Ford made where, check this out (American made???) Made everywhere!

    List of Ford factories - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I know, I know, the parent Company is overseas and Ford is Stateside, I've heard it before, let me employ some common sense. Toyota made in Georgetown, KY is employing Americans, Ford made in the Phillipines is not being made by Americans so who is supporting America more?

    Two guesses and the first one doesn't count.

    Let's not discuss Chevy, most trucks are made and assembled in Canada and Mexico.

    No argument from me, I'm just tired of hearing American made when the truth is they are not American made anymore then the Chinese American Flags sold at Wal-Mart.

    Rant 101 is over.

    And after the whole "paid off our debt" lie from Chevy they shouldn't even be in the running. GM=Government Motors IMHO...

    Bass Pro doesn't choose their "offical truck" simply by what truck Bass Pro likes. It based on a business decisions and partnerships... AKA money. Toyota partnered up with Bass Pro for the extra advertising face time and that's about it.
    I know Toyota has always donated a lot to outdoor causes, I don't have an issue with either company. Business is business.

    Couldn't vote

    Is a 'foreign' car/truck one with an American name that is mostly made in other countries or one with a foreign name but made in America by American workers?

    Actually, any manufacturer that didn't take money out of my pocket in a bail-out is aces in my world. I would quit dealing with Bass Pro Shop forever if they had chosen something from Obama Motors.

    +1 I agree, I applaud Ford for backing away from the bail-outs. I drive a Tundra now and when its time will probably go over to Ford, but I will never own a GM or Chysler product (new anyway, an oldder blazer of CJ Jeep might not be too bad).

    I drive two Fords. The Fusion was assembled in Mexico. The other is so old I can't remember and it doesn't matter.

    I rarely participate in boycotts for reasons similar to those in this discussion. You just can't be certain where/who makes the things you need/use.

    I don't care if the Toyota Tundra is the official truck of Bass Pro or any other business. I just don't buy into "something" being the "official anything" of "something else." I make the best decision possible. If the price point meets my assessment of value, then I'll buy it.

    I enjoy Bass Pro Shops, but purchase few things there. It is 45 minutes away and most of the things I am interested in are cheaper locally or delivered to my home via internet order.

    Toyota Tundras (and soon Tacomas) are made in San Antonio, Texas.

    and many of the components for the toyotas are produced overseas, shipped to the us and assembled here....a great deal of the components for american vehicles are produced in the united states by us suppliers and shipped out of the country for assembly...the number of american jobs supported by american manufacturers is large...they just dont all work for the amerian manufacturers...they work for suppliers...

    everyone builds a good vehicle today and what you choose is your business...but believing that buying a foreign brand vehicle is doing more to support the us economy than buying an american vehicle you are mistaken...

    Toyota parts now made in the U.S. : Auto Repair Information Blog



    Let me be clear, most vehicles are made good and I concur, to each their own, but I'm just tired of the misinformation being strewn around that American Made is American Made when in fact the facts are being sent out and all one has to do is search for the truth and it's sitting there. While not all inclusive mind you, I putting out proof, backing my play here. Have something to counter, I'm open minded enough to take a look.

    I find it funny that people boycot store because of things like their "official truck". Give me a break, I shop where things are convenient and reasonably priced. Everyone here talks about shopping at Walmart and yet they are one of the worst offenders as far as outsourcing goes.

    I'd be more concerned about where the products they are selling are coming from than where their "official" truck came from. I'm not there to buy a truck, after all.

    If you are worried about "buying American" then start with whats on sale at the store first.
